The Le Mans 24 Hours was delayed until this coming weekend but the 19-20 September race still comes too early for fans to attend.

As in previous years, live coverage of the race will be available worldwide via TV and apps; free of charge in some countries, but requiring a subscription in others.

The Tricolour will drop at 2.30pm local time at the Circuit de la Sarthe with a 60-car field taking off for the 2020 Le Mans 24 Hours, but you can begin the build-up to the race from Thursday, with coverage of the first practice and qualifying sessions.

Whether you’re planning on recreating the atmosphere of the race weekend via Zoom with friends; studying the tactics in detail with a multi-screen setup, or simply dropping in over the weekend, here is a guide on where and when to tune in for the 88th running of the Le Mans 24 Hours.
